Is Hydroponically grown vegetables organic?
vegetables grown hydroponically get their nutrition from a blend of fertilisers. These are dissolved in the water in specific quantities so as to give the plant a balanced diet without danger of toxicity. This ensures a healthy and strong plant. But since the plants get their nutrition from synthetic fertilisers the produce cannot be certified organic.
Have any pesticides been used while growing the vegetables?
Most vegetables at True Leaf Farms are grown in our polyhouse which minimises the chances of pest attacks. In case of any pest issues our first line of defence is always orgically safe pesticides. In case of severe infestations synthetic pesticides are used after following precautions and harvested only after the recommended residue free period.
